and I got tickets to the opening exhibition game in allen field house. I didn’t get tickets to the missourah exhibition. only the big money donors got to buy them.
I can’t wait until tomorrow. my usual ritual is to buy a jersey at the field house and to go high five the players at the end of the game. i also try to get a picture with some cheer leaders. most indulge this old guy. will see if I get to do any of these this time.
the jayhawks are ranked number 3 now. no doubt they will be good. only question is how good will they be.
I went to trunk or treat yesterday with the grand sons. I have helped at that event for a few years. I stopped by the health centers stand. for old times sake I guess. I used to have fun working with them.
I went to a nephews’ wedding this week end. it was on the rez. my son did the wedding ceremony. I am happy that he is doing the things that I used to do. he taught himself by watching and listening. I find it encouraging that someone young is picking those things up.
had to winterize my tiller. leaving gas in the tank over the winter has caused problems before. I had to have carburetor work done because of that. don’t want that to happen again so I drained the gas tank. that old tiller has to last me.
next I have to take the gas tank off my riding mower. it had some gunk in the tank. not sure where it come from but it has to be cleaned out. that is or was a brand new mower. it has to last me years also.
I started another roach with Haskell colors. I have to tie the porky hair next. it wont take long to finish. I work on roaches when I feel like it. I can binge watch or listen to music while making one so it isn’t so monotonous. I will have a large of supply of them by the end of winter. maybe enough to have a stand at some big pow wow.
seen that dennis banks died. that’s too bad. I got to talk to him at an airport when I was coming back from a traditional foods conference at red lake. my ticket didn’t have my full name on it so they weren’t letting me board. I had to wait for a number of calls before they let me get on the plane.
dennis said I didn’t think they were gonna let you get on. I laughed. we started talking then. I asked him if I could have our picture taken together. he said yeah so I asked one of our traditional foods group to take it. our group asked who is that guy. I told them so they started taking his picture too.
I have been watching the world series. even if I aint got no money on it. I watch every championship series. world series, nba playoffs, super bowl, ncaa tourney. even if I don’t tune into most games I do like to watch the championships where the best play the best.
I will miss next world series game because I will be watching k u mens basketball. my daughter will be in los angeles to watch the dodgers play. lucky girl. proud that she goes after things she wants. hope it goes to game seven so I can watch the last game….
